I think Pipeline's the best song off this album. It's nothing compared to the original, but it's still catchy as hell. And it's the only reason why I have Going Public on my IPhone  Grin

I'm late to this but I haven't listened to the album since I was 15.  That said, I remember having a violent, visceral negative reaction to "Won't Somebody Dance With Me" that was so searing that I can recall the chorus 30 years later, and now I want it to go away.

So I vote for that.

I'm pretty sure that was the first song voted off. You're going to have to pick something else  Smiley

Your instincts served you well. That was indeed the first song voted off.  LOL

Welcome back, one and all, to the second thread of the Beach Boys Solo Survivor. I can tell this is a thread for the Survivor DIEHARDS!  LOL

The Solo Survivors are going to tackle the main solo albums of members of the Beach Boys. This will not include solo albums released prior to membership in the Beach Boys. This will also not include works done by members who were participating in different groups (ie David Marks in The Moon or The Marksmen) nor will it include "Best Of" albums or rehash albums (ie Summertime Cruisin' by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston will not be included. This also means we will not be including Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE or I Just Wasn't Made For These Times.) Lastly, we will not be including EP's or Unreleased Albums.

Some of the Solo Survivor albums may be hard to come across. Smilers are encouraged to locate legal copies of the solo albums. I expect these rounds to go quicker with less voting than normal. No big deal.

So without further ado...

Quote
Going Public is Beach Boys member Bruce Johnston's third and final solo album, and the only one recorded after becoming a member of the band. It was released in 1977 under Columbia Records. Bruce proves to the world what Beach Boys fans have known from the get-go: namely, he hasn't a rock 'n' roll bone in his body.



So apparently this is the most hated album in entire Beach Boys Oeuvre.  LOL

Making bland wine in a super clean garage. (6)

Per the usual, vote for your LEAST FAVORITE TRACK. The track with most votes will be voted off.

Tally on July 31st. If you can bring yourself to vote.

"Rock and Roll Survivor"  This is even worse than "Pipeline" - getting tough to say just what is going to win.

I Write the Songs

Production on this one kept fairly simple.  Its inclusion is also far more credible than his other old songs because he hadn't recorded them previously in much better versions.
